Tropical Artbooking

I would love to share my very first Artbooking adventure with you.  What is Artbooking you ask?  Well, as explained in a post a few below this one, it is a brand new cartridge available only from your Close To My Heart consultant - me!!! Beyond that, it is a tool that will turn your scrapbook layouts, cards and papercrafting into true works of ART.  You may purchase the Artbooking cartridge today by clicking HERE, and it will be mailed directly from Close To My Heart right to your home.  So as promised, here is my Tropical Artbooking project featuring the beautiful CTMH Surf's Up paper pack.

My inspiration for this project came from the very talented Miss Gingerdots herself, Tina Sutton.  I loved a layout that Tina had created, and I decided that I needed to copy her stamping around the background page, her choices of colors and CTMH paper.  What is not to love about those palm trees that she created?  I set out to create the left hand page on my own with her composition in mind. Here is the layout that I came up with.

And here is the right side layout that I created.

I love this layout!  Thank you, Tina, for the inspiration.


  1. Beautiful interpretation! I like how you chose to do your background stamping with the diamonds hanging down instead of a straight edge!

  2. This is perfect for an album I'm working on right now. Can't wait to try it.
    Thanks for he inspiration.
